    Apparently no one has ever watched a JCB demo video from the dealers as they do similar stunts with backhoes....

    Done some of that on our S175. Learned real quick to keep the load near the ground and to smoothly stop and start. Recently had a newbie back our cat 242 off the side of our lowboy. New engine, $9,000 later and one less employee on site we were back in business.

    There's worse on youtube.....WAY WORSE lol.

    I am with Angel, The JCB digger's are extreme as hell! and there sponsored by the MFG.

    look up SkidSteer Square Dance on youtube, you'll find out that the OP vid is not really a big deal. Infact I gurantee everyone of you (and me) have done the same thing with a Skid.......maybe just not on purpose :D

    The only part that worried me in the OP vid, was when the machine was on the door with all 4 wheels off the ground,.....total loss of control.


    oh and I have C series CaT's, so no more wheelies for me :rolleyes: lol

    Son... that's a very impressive display of skid-steer mastery.

    You're fired.


    LOL!
